MY MARIAN MEDITATION FOR TODAY
It's interesting with what has transpired in the last few days from the Vatican that many in the world are saying "What foolishness is this?" We have the liberals and modernists, and some Jewish groups who are upset about the Pope's Motu proprio, which is titled "Summorum Pontificum." Some are saying "What foolishness is this?"
Then we have the Document released yesterday by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is receiving a great deal of attention. It is entitled "Responses to Some Questions Regarding Certain Aspects of the Doctrine on the Church" and is, in large part, a follow-up to the 2000 document Dominus Iesus, and deals with the identity of the Catholic Church, and with the relation of the Catholic Church to the oriental Churches separated from Rome and to the Protestant ecclesial Communities. Again, some of the Christian communities separated from the Roman Catholic Church are screaming "What foolishness is this?"
Well, as Our Lady says in this particular Message to Fr. Gobbi, that we just don't understand that God chooses foolishness to confound wisdom, and weakness to overcome strength! Just like this little Blue Book started out as a few pages to be distributed in pamphlet form to Her priests around the world, it became Her instrument of calling many priests, bishops and lay people into Our Lady's Movement where She could form us into Her invincible army! And this Movement has spread everywhere, with many thousands belonging to it!
I believe that what the Holy Father has done and will continue to do is confound those who have been trying to destroy the True Catholic Faith and with his "Foolishness" and through his inspirations the Church will be purified and strengthened in Faith, Hope and Love! We may have a smaller Church, a remnant, so to speak, but it will be totally orthodox in Faith and Worship! I've been waiting almost 40 years for these days, how about you?
